    Talking .50 Cal 1000yard head shot.

    My buddy owns about 2500 acres of land out in Madras, Oregon. He turned a portion of it in a private 1000 yard rifle range He wanted to see if Marines are truely the worlds best marksmen- At 1000yds I said that I could make it a headshot on his steel plate targets with his .50 Cal ... and of course I gave him the headshot he was looking for!

    He said- "damn beginners luck,,, gimme one in the chest!"

    Second shot 1000 Yds same 50 Cal. chest shot!

    They now do not doubt, Marines are clearly the best marksmen in the world.

    All this Army guy sees is somebody shooting and two spotters, neither of which say a word. :neener:

    Nice range though, sounded cold.

    I don't know about the best marksman in the world, but you are sure a lot better than me! :)

    That's some nice shooting, doublenutz! Some intersting info...

    The longest kill is now held by a Canadian.

    The current world record for the longest range sniper kill is 2,430 metres (2,657 yd), accomplished by a Canadian sniper, Corporal Rob Furlong, of the third battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (3 PPCLI), during the invasion of Afghanistan, using a .50 caliber BMG (12.7 mm) McMillan TAC-50 bolt-action rifle. This meant that the bullet had a flight time of ≈ 4.5 seconds, and a drop of ≈ 70 meters (230 ft).


    The previous record was held by US Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock, achieved during the Vietnam War, at a distance of 2,250 metres (2,461 yd).

    Come on Marines, we need to get the record back!:D

    I have video footage of a Marine Sniper taking off the head, shoulder and arm of an insurgent at that distance. .50 cal will do that kinda stuff! Not suitable for posting though.
